Heike Humphreys (professional name AKASHA) is a qualified JWAAD teacher. She first starting learning Arabic dance in 1989 and instantly fell in love with the dance. She originally turned to the dance because of her love of all things Egyptian and also because it had nothing to do with Aerobics and the attached body fascism. Heike originally studied with Sandra Thiebault, who unfortunately retired from regular classes after a while. Heike then continued her dance training by attending workshops with many highly acclaimed dancers of the Suraya Hilal School of Raks Sharqi, especially Anne Ashcroft and Liza Wedgewood. In 1996, Heike moved back to Germany for a short while and studied with Sonia & Albert, Edith Glockner, Shaddai and Rehan from Frankfurt who is renowned for her ‘authentic’ Egyptian style. Back in England, she carried on with the dance troupe, but was looking for more of a challenge.
